End-User Experience

Transaction Visibility Across All Applications

Full Application Visibility With Zero Performance Impact

Skylight™ sensors identify and track application transactions inside all traffic that crosses the network—all at wire speed with zero impact on network or application performance. IT teams can view and share information on the end-user experience for specific or critical transactions in the form of dashboards and reports.

This enables IT teams to collaborate across functional groups (i.e., helpdesk, network, systems, applications), proactively monitor key applications, resolve performance issues, and optimize the overall performance path.

Skylight sensors feature a comprehensive set of real-time transaction decoders—hundreds of  application and service protocols are supported—enabling IT teams to track and measure the performance of:

  • HTTP / web applications
  • HTTPS traffic, including SaaS application traffic
  • Database systems
  • Storage and file transfer (CIFS/SMB)
  • Name resolution (DNS, etc.)
  • Microsoft services (DCE/RPC)
  • Remote desktops (Citrix XenApp / XenDesktop)
  • VoIP call media and signaling

New application or service protocols can be defined and catalogued with a few clicks, enabling Skylight to meet the needs of evolving application environments.
